Launched in January 2020, the Reskilling Revolution aims to empower one billion people with better education, skills and economic opportunity by 2030. During the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting 2024, the community of leaders announced that it reached more than 680 million people with opportunities for improving skills, jobs and education.
“The Reskilling Revolution was timely when the Forum launched the initiative four years ago, and it is now even more urgent,” said Jonas Prising, Chief Executive Officer of the ManpowerGroup. “As tech adoption continues at pace, increasing people’s employability and providing them with greater control of their prosperity and earning potential is critical to creating a future that is better for the many, not the few.”
Investments in the economy, technology, or the environment cannot succeed without the equivalent investment in people and equitable opportunities. Participants advanced projects on jobs and skills, digital inclusion and healthcare, among others. According to the Reskilling Revolution, accelerated progress on better education and upskilling could add $8.3 trillion to global GDP by 2030. How? By following key steps:
